Nothing could be a more appropriate topic for archive.org
, and though it has been widely discussed in the archive, no film that I have yet found has stated the argument so clearly and made such an interesting case for the easing of copyright restrictions.
If the film suffers from any of its content, it's the extreme close-ups on Horovitz coupled with his dirge-like discourses on his dilemma. If you can survive his sluggish, though useful, monologues, you'll really love the film. Sure, it borrows, even in the title, from the Michael-Moore-style documentary (maybe that's part of the point - creative collaboration through necessary borrowing), though Moore would've been a welcome addition to liven things up a bit. Horovitz even mentions Moore in the film.
The interviews, made with a wide range of elected officials and owners of media businesses, are rather enlightening. The final statements regarding Disney's own hypocrisy in this issue, achieved through the direct juxtapositions of some of Disney's earliest efforts and the sources they borrowed from, are illuminating. And it's a nice touch to have filmed it in DisneyLand.
The film is just under 25 minutes long, but it's a well-spent 25 minutes. I would've liked some credits, though.
